very good question, it is like ford,chevy,dodge i think . i also have an old savage 99 in 250-3000. this 25x47 will fit a loaded round and also unload a loaded round out of the shorter ultra light arms 20S action. the 250-savage is just to long to do this,
i also like to play with some of the smaller wildcats and this 1 is so nice to load for and shoot. lets remember this is used in a hunting rifle not for bench rest shooting.
so i just use the 222 rem mag brass when i can find it and now with the 204 brass it is even easier to find and load.i had the chance to chaperone my girlfriends daughter pn a guided mule deer hunt that she won . the guide was not sure about her using such a small round to take a big mule deer.well after her 1 shot and we were back in camp the guide change his mind about the 25x47 and said she had just taken the biggest mule deer of all there hunters so far that year.
